Greetings all,

Some inquiring minds want to know. I have been grounded for 4.5 months due to 3 surgeries and minor 4th pending next week on my right foot. A foolish accident has had me off the building board (with 8 Albatros D. V & Va kits in various states of assembly). But I see the light at the end of the tunnel and its not the 3:10 to Yuma. The reviews are pretty much upto date but I have a promise of the Eduard SE 5a to be delivered. I will be fine but a couple of the old hands here wanted an update. No, I won't post any images of my right foot. All the best to you and I'll do another fly by soon.

Great to see you back amongst us Stephen, hopes for a speedy and full recovery mate. Just make sure you use your left foot to kick those failed builds out the window for a while!

Cheers, D

Hi Jack,

Try saying that around an airport!

Godspeed with your healing. Glad to see you on this site. I look forward to your models.
